PRESS

‘A deliciously funny, beautifully acted, bone-dry comedy’
- TIME OUT

‘A delight... It would be a tough soul that didn’t warm to this terrific little movie... It’s wonderful stuff’
- THE TIMES

‘A movie with great poignancy and charm’
- THE GUARDIAN

‘Eccentric, comic and touching’
- THE EVENING STANDARD

‘A gem... Beautifully low-key performances’
- THE INDEPENDENT

'A terrific film from South America... A low-key comedy that has been compared to the deadpan style of Aki Kaurismaki, this was a real discovery'
- THE TIMES

'WHISKY, was a gem'
Roger Clarke, THE INDEPENDENT (LFF)

'Proof, if any were needed, that some of the best cinema in the world is now coming from South America. But this slow-burning, bittersweet drama from Uruguay is a world away from... Brazil and Mexico... It’s wonderful stuff - a minutely observed story that finds moments of heartbreaking comedy in the most inconsequential of details'
- Wendy Ide, THE TIMES

'A wonderfully droll comedy from Uruguay'
- Demetrios Matheou, THE SUNDAY TIMES CULTURE

'... the lovely Uruguayan deadpan comedy'
- Jason Solomons, THE OBSERVER

'Juan Pablo Rebella and Pablo Stoll put Uruguayan cinema on the map with this deliciously deadpan study of sibling envy, unrequited loyalty and late-life disappointment... Full of small smiles and wise insights, this is a little gem'
- David Parkinson, RADIO TIMES
